Bryson DeChambeau appears to switching to Cobra clubs when he turns pro.

According to Golfweek’s David Dusek, he was spotted at last week’s Georgia Cup using a same-length set of Cobra King Forged MB irons for the first time.

The charismatic American has been known for using a set of single length Edel irons throughout his amateur career but it appears he will be making a change.

According to Dusek: the irons are “Cobra King Forged MB irons (3, 5-PW, with KBS C-Taper Lite 115 X shafts) are all 37.5 inches long, the same length as a standard 6-iron. Each head weighs 280 grams and has a lie angle of 73.5 degrees.”

He is also gaming Cobra Tour Trusty 50-, 55- and 60- degree wedges with KBS High-Rev 130 shafts.
